This course enables students who have already completed an FdSc or HND in a related subject to convert to a full BSc (Hons). The course is designed to enable you to understand and apply the principles of animal management and husbandry whilst specialising in streams that open up opportunities to a range of job markets and conducting their own individual piece of research. Applicants should have completed a FdSc or HND programme in an animal science related field. Applications from mature students or people seeking part-time opportunities would be welcomed. This course allows you to specialise in two optional streams from: Animal Science, Veterinary Health, Animal Behaviour and Welfare, or Zoo Management and Conservation. Alongside these, you will undertake a large research project on your own area of interest. Recent graduates have successfully furthered their careers in a wide variety of animal-related positions including as canine hydro therapists, welfare officers, nutrition specialists, animal technicians and college lecturers. Others have gone on to further education in the animal sciences in areas such as animal welfare, physiotherapy and veterinary nursing.
